International Children's Bible for Girls

Thomas Nelson released a copy of the International Children's Bible in a very girly edition with pink fabric, sequins, flowers, and hearts. This version is made for girls in mind, I would say ages 4 up to tweener aged. It is a complete Bible with Old and New Testaments, with a few extra things, but mostly it is just a plain Bible without fillers. There are no study notes or pictures, but I think this is fine, because it is a Bible and not a Bible story Book.

I like the ICB version of the Bible for reading to my daughters. They enjoy listening, and it is not difficult for them to understand like my ESV, NKJV, or NASB. The print is a good size, but a bit small for younger readers, but it will work well for parents reading to their daughters. I gave this to my middle daughter, Mae, for her 4th birthday, and she has looked at it a lot since then, and it seems pretty sturdy. Overall, I really liked this and I bought another ICB version for my oldest daughter, since I liked it as a first Bible for them.

I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze®.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
